YNS Feature Day!

Today is a special day at YNS because it is Feature Day!
We are inspired by anything and everything winter related. 
Snow, warm drinks, cozy cuddles, was up to us!
For my Feature Day post I wanted to show you what I have been busy making with a newly released AMAZING Die from the December Release called:
This little bag is perfect to put treats in it and fancy it up with another one of our new dies (Bow-tiful Little Bows) that creates these cute little bows! I then watercoloured this adorable snowman from the Snow Much Joy set.
And then, I didn't stop there!....
We had a Christmas dinner with our friends on the weekend and I gave everyone one of these cute little bags. (I actually found mini Tic Tacs that fit perfectly inside!)

Here is what everything I used
looks like!

Hope you enjoyed everything and wishing everyone a 
very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
Got to the YNS Blog, make a comment and you could win a 
stamp set of your choice! (Now isn't that a great present?!)
